Are you a parent looking for a way to teach child-development traits, child safety, and self-defense skills necessary for success in the world - to help your child develop to his or her fullest potential? Well. . .

All Child-Development Programs Are NOT the Same!

While there are many good children's programs, groups, and organizations out there, the truth is that, when examined closely on the grounds of benefits. . .

. . no other child-development program develops the whole child like a well-structured martial arts program.

We all have three basic aspects to our make-up, and children are certainly no different. If we are to insure that our children grow up with all of the advantages necessary to become positive, powerful and productive people, we must make sure that we work to provide those things, including educational resources, that will develop these three aspects within them:

  • Physical (including the body and it's overall fitness, strength level, and health)

  • Mental (including clarity and focus, knowledge, and problem-solving abilities)

    and. . .

  • Spiritual/Emotional (including feelings of self-worth, value, and purpose)

A well-structured program teaches the same child-development lessons that many other groups and organizations do, but with several distinct differences.

These differences include:

  • Developing the whole child (physically, mentally & emotionally)

  • The leaders are walking, talking examples of the program

  • Challenging every student to succeed (not just rewarding those who do)

  • The program is based on sound child-development principles

  • The leaders understand and use good child-development models for maximum results with all types of children

Only a well-structured martial arts program for children develops the whole child. . .

. . body, mind, and spirit.

If you've never thought of looking into the martial arts for your child, consider it. It just might be the best decision you ever make for them.
